Praise for CatStronauts: "With its appealing blend of cuteness, substance, and humor, this should have readers over the moon. "—Kirkus Reviews
"Brockington's off-the-wall kitty sci-fi series packs the full-color panels with cute cats, space travel, and comical high jinks... sure to elicit lots of giggles among middlegrade comics fans."—Booklist
"The engagingly lighthearted drama and positive resolutions, and the expressive characters, who are as adorable as they are adventurous, provide... fun purchases that will do well on their own or paired with heavier nonfiction titles on history or the environment."
—School Library Journal
"Humor and suspense compete throughout... In playful, mock-heroic, full-color cartoons, Brockington mines space theater for everything.... Even the chapter headings get in on the fun."—Publishers Weekly
"There's lots of enthusiasm for graphic novels for this age range, and the CatStronauts deserve a spot."—BCCB
